Do you love flying, have you ever dreamt about it ? Do you love the smell of burned fuel, the flair inside a Terminal ?
Then this is your destination!
Welcome to the website of TheEDDF
I want to give you a quick overview over this site and what you can discover here.
So please fasten your seat belts, we're taking off soon!
You can watch every single video of TheEDDF. The 'Videos' site is well structured, so you feel pleasant from the first look.
On this page you find all spotting videos, short scenes, ... in their own playlists.
Discover the huge database. There you can find lots of information about the current fleets of Lufthansa, Qatar Airways, Icelandair and so on. Also you get tons of information about my homebase Frankfurt Airport.
You want to know which airlines fly to Frankfurt and with which aircraft they land here? Then you have to take a look to the 'FRA operations' page. There you get the latest information about nearly every movement in Frankfurt and the changes in the near future.
That was the overview and now I wish you a lot of fun discovering my website.

Finally, or as Sebastian Vettel would say it: Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes !!
We finally have it :) Today we spotted our first A350 from Thai Airways and holy crab this bird looks awesome. Unfortunately we couldn't see the takeoff because of a thunderstorm over Frankfurt but all in all a big shout out to Thai for this baby.
I'm very sorry that there was new video this weekend. I usually cut my videos in the evening but I was to tired last week. On Thursday we went to the airport at 6am for the next morning spotting. Friday I had to work and on saturday there was the big soccer finale where my soccer team played....and unfortunately lost. It was a real fight and I'm very sad about this defeat.
Next point on my spotting list is Wizzair. They launched their service on Monday last week and I didn't had the opportunity to see them.
So the new video is coming this week I promise you and I try to cut and render it to Wednesday, so I can upload and post it on Thursday.
Have a nice week guys :)
The new Cargo flightplan for Frankfurt is online. Finally ! Check it out.
I wasn't able to put the frequencies in because as you all know, cargo flights aren't frequent.
Next step is the Lufthansa flightplan with Cityline and Condor. All SunExpress flights will be included with the next update of the operational changes.
New airline in the database: Oman Air. Searched for a new airline for my database, I looked into my Frankfurt schedule and there ist is :) Oman Air has a "little" fleet of 50 aircraftconsisting of Airbus A330, Boeing 737 and 787 and Embraer 175.
So it is the perfect airline for a friday evening. If you have any suggestions for airlines that have to join the database than write me an E-Mail or on my social medias.
New spotting video will be online tomorrow at 15:00 MESZ (13:00 UTC).
Have a nice weekend !
Yesterday I made a huge compliment to Icelandair and I was pretty happy with everything. Today it is the complete opposite. Let's start with Lufthansa:
Five or six months ago Lufthansa painted one of their Airbus A321s with some cranes to support "crane protection Germany". Today I saw her without this beautiful livery. In my opinion it was the best looking aircraft by Lufthansa in their currently fleet. I can't say why the took off the livery...maybe they don't support the protection of cranes any more although it's the airlines animal.
And now to DFS (Geman air traffic control):
Thai flew with their 747-400 to Frankfurt 4 times on saturday evening flights in April. Michael and I didn't had the opportunity to spot it when it came the first three times. So we drove to the airport last saturday. We had west winds so for us it was absolutely clear where the 747 should land. BUT two minutes ahead of Thai's landing, DFS changed the landing direction. So there was no chane to film this bird.
Today we had the first opportunity to spot Thai Airways brand new A350-900, which flies to Frankfurt now; today there were winds from the east. So we drove to the "Affenfelsen". We saw the aircraft downwind and expected it's landing 5-10 minutes after that. Once more DFS changed the landing direction. Both times the wind was about one or two knots and that is absolutely NO reason to change directions. Everytime when you think: "yeah, everything is fine.", DFS changes something randomly. I'm so upset ! This is a brazenness !
What a exciting week for us aviatiors. Westjet bought 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Icelandair "Fox-India-Romeo" is back in Reykjavik with a stunning new livery and Hawaiian Airlines unveiled a new livery and look of Pualani, the lady on their tail. Vueling did a special livery on one of their A320 for their 100.000.000 passenger and Thai Airways started their Airbus A350 operation to Frankfurt on monday.
Unfortunately Alitalia started a insolvency proceeding on Tuesday... after nearly 70 years of operation.
Big new FRA operations update! I spent the evening with updating the FRA operations database. Whats new?
All TUI Fly and NIKI flights plus all charters (e.g. Sundair, Nesma, Small Planet, Bulgarian Air Charter,...). And of course all other changes. So check it out!
Also there is a new design, all infos are now on one site and the newest updates are marked.
The only missing airlines now are all cargo airlines, Lufthansa, Condor and SunExpress. I think about making a second database just for this. If you have any suggestions...let me know it :)
I just wanna to give you a short update:
On sunday the flightplan for summer started, so there is new stuff flying to Frankfurt from now on (check out FRA operations).
Also on sunday, Michael and I made our first Morning Spotting for 2017 (video is coming in probably two or three weeks).
I decided to take a little break and I went spotting on friday, saturday and as I mentioned sunday. That's the reason why I didn't upload any video this weekend.
Currently I'm cutting the video for this saturday and it's going to be a looong video :)
Last but not least: Next week, I gonna drive to Sylt, the most northern island of Germany (yes I know...islands that belong to Germany...crazy country :D). I will take my cams with me. Maybe there will be a new Vlog or just a impressions video from the North Sea.
So I wish you a great week :)
This saturday is a big day for my channel. From today the website and TheEDDF itself will be an english youtube channel. The last few days I've spent my time with translating this website from german to english so everyone can understand what is going on here. For a couple of weeks my Twitter and Facebook pages are already in english and now I decided to translate also my website.
I hope there are no big mistakes with my translation, if you find a mistake than please send me an E-Mail via my contact page.
Thank you all guys and have a nice weekend !
